Examples

Code Editor (JavaScript)

// Define a Rectangle object.
var rectangle = ee.Geometry.Rectangle(-122.09, 37.42, -122.08, 37.43);

// Apply the edgesAreGeodesics method to the Rectangle object.
var rectangleEdgesAreGeodesics = rectangle.edgesAreGeodesics();

// Print the result to the console.
print('rectangle.edgesAreGeodesics(...) =', rectangleEdgesAreGeodesics);

// Display relevant geometries on the map.
Map.setCenter(-122.085, 37.422, 15);
Map.addLayer(rectangle,
             {'color': 'black'},
             'Geometry [black]: rectangle');
